This Saturday night, at 8:30 p.m. March 29, the exterior lights on Penn State's Old Main will go out for Earth Hour 2014. In addition, decorative floodlights at the Lion Shrine, the Nittany Lion Inn, and the Information Sciences and Technology Building will be shut-off. The goal of Earth Hour is to bring awareness to climate change and environmental conservation by turning off lights. Penn State's EcoAction student organization is sponsoring this year’s event on the Old Main patio and the event will include a countdown with the Penn State Taiko Drum Club. Additional entertainment on the Old Main patio will include: Blue in the Face, NOMMO, Belly Dance, the International Dance Ensemble, Swing Dance and the RAM Squad.
